Went to powdercoaters, nothing my pile of bits next to all the other privateers, clearly they’ve got to the other side of COVID. Might consider setting up my own pc plant, doing only small stuff limited colours and fixed turnaround, say 2 weeks, must be people interested.
So a little miffed got back to a hot hot hot shop 28 outside36 inside, must insulate that roof.

Redid the RSR top, finished with side bits and radius the top handle, I think I works better now. Will braze at the weekend when it’s cooler.
Also redid the calliper bracket, only paper template, ordered plate and m20 spacers to make up. As I’ve got a half empty box awaiting zinc phas I’ll get them done and justify another coating delivery.

Postal order too sort know then back to workshop, have a good day all.

Light weekend really, only machined the M8 x 20 mm dia x 10mm H spacers, even that took me a few hours, can see why they charge £12 each!

Metals arrived for the plates, will start tmr and post final parts, need the stuff from the powder coaters!

Ok I hate it when stuff don’t go right….
Cut plates all good, drilled pilot holes all good, bolted both plates together,mailed, sanded and cut plates all good. Added threaded spacers and bolted tight prior to welding, not good.
Chamfered back of spacers and welded, undid bolts and bosh, snapped……4 hours later one clean and retap hole, the other requires a insert.
As they lessons learnt.

Bolts positions and lengths to be adjusted, also offset on calliper is way out, need a 5.6mm spacer, mocked up with washers for now….finish other setup, then strip down , leg off to powder coasters and bracket to players….dash and engine bay next….

Some bits back from Alder racing, very please with quality, need to fit and make dash loom tails......

For reference its a copy of a works rally mini fuse box, with my twist, the original had two bolts to space, i cut off the tabs and bolted closer, felt they use less space and works visually better IMHO

Still nothing from the Powder Coaters, so sending the final zinc passivate stuff out and some soda blast while I wait, day off today and back in shop, starting to button up front end and finish the bonnet/electrical bays/dash.

Then its pedal box, seat position and fix....
